Enjoy beautiful Hardegarijp

Hardegarijp is a small village located in a beautiful green area near the famous “Elfsteden” (11 towns). Famous Frisian towns such as Leeuwarden and Dokkum are easily accessible by car, motorcycle, train, and bus. The other well-known “Elfsteden” towns are easy to reach from hotel Hardegarijp. How about taking the “Elfstedenroute” – a famous Dutch ice-skating route? At our front desk, we offer route maps to complete this route by car, motorcycle, or bicycle.

Not only the cities but also the typical Dutch small towns have something to offer for everyone. Enjoy a boat trip in National Park de Âlde Feanen in Eernewoude. Go for a beautiful hike through the National Park, paddle the waters, or go for traditional Frisian Skûtsjesilen (sailing)!

If you take a hand full of change with you, you can cycle the “Pondjesroute”. Various ferries will take you and your bike over the water during this route.

Not only Eernewoude is known as a water sports area, but Leeuwarden is also known for its many canals where you can try traditional Frisian “Praamvaren” (Pram sailing). Or rent a sloop and take a nice boat trip on the “Bonkevaart”. Would you like to try something adventurous? Go for traditional “Fierljeppen” (jumping ditches).

Have you always wanted to visit one of the “Wadden Islands”?  Take the ferry in Holwerd or Lauwersoog to visit the islands of Ameland or Schiermonnikoog. We are happy to help you arrange your boat tickets. Lauwersoog is also the place to go for mud flat walking through the Wadden Sea during low tide and to spot seals.

The port of Harlingen offers many opportunities to enjoy the unique Wadden Sea. Go seal spotting, take a Wadden Sea trip or go for a beautiful walk through the harbors!
